As companies re-open and work towards the new normal, business owners are looking to claw back trade and much-needed revenue, they are also taking stock and examining how to save costs in a post-Covid business environment.
Cutting energy costs is probably one of the easiest ways for a business to save money. Investing in energy efficiency provides payback over the short, medium, and long-term. And with the range of grants and supports available from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), it makes sense to make that investment sooner rather than later.
From grants for renewable heating systems to supports for specific energy-savings projects – there is an array of incentives available that may ease the transition to sustainability.
All the initiatives are currently open to applicants, apart from the SEAI’s EXEED grant scheme, which is now closed for 2020 – but is worth keeping an eye on for energy investment plans in the future. This scheme is worth up to €500,000 a year.
